Capcom asks fans which downloadable titles the developer should make

Long-suffering Capcom fans hoping to see a new Ghosts 'n Goblins, a new Powerstone or simply a downloadable version of Resident Evil 2 for current and next-generation consoles can voice their opinions to Capcom, thanks to a newly published survey.

Capcom senior vice president Christian Svensson posted the survey to Capcom Unity today, asking fans to speak up on the downloadable titles they'd like to see Capcom focus on.

"There's no guarantees on what the outcomes will be, but I promise you, this data will be a factor in our decision making process," Svensson writes, stressing that the survey applies only to digital games, not retail games.

The survey asks users which console, computer and portable game devices they plan to purchase, including the next-generation PlayStation and Xbox platforms. Capcom then breaks down potential digital games into five categories: new, original IP, straight ports of classic games, high-definition remakes of classic games, franchise reboots and franchise extensions that use existing titles and characters in new ways.

"We're looking to gather data about your buying habits and what franchises and even title types you'd like us to make in the future."

Some of the potential franchises under consideration in the survey include dormant fan favorites like Strider, Powerstone, Dino Crisis, Breath of Fire and Final Fight. Series like Street Fighter, Mega Man, Resident Evil and Monster Hunter are also up for voting, and Capcom offers the option for write-ins, should fans want to lobby for a Black Tiger or Forgotten Worlds HD remake.

The potential remake and sequel options are occasionally interesting. For example, Capcom lists an updated HD port of Street Fighter Alpha 3 with extra characters as a possible option alongside an "HD Remix" of PSP game Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins and new extensions to the Resident Evil franchise (strategy, tactics and role-playing games).

Svensson says he'll be sharing the details of the survey with Capcom Japan "before the end of the year."
